hi Anju

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

From your history it appears that you have Sciatica.Sciatica is most commonly due to vertebral disc problems like disc prolapse , Potts spine. We would require your xray , MRI scan reports of spine to give you a better advice. If possible please post them as a reply to this comment.Physiotherapy and vitamin supplements play a key role in gaining back the function of sciatica limbs.

Take care.

I m 16, 6 foot 3, 180 pounds, and i have asthma and allergies but no other bone or muscle problems. I was working out about a week and a half ago and I was do an ab workout by lifting my legs that had weight on them. About 20 pounds each leg. I think it pulled a muscle in my back or something because ever since i added that part to my workout I ve been having back pain in my lower back. I was just wondering if I did pull something in my back and if so how i should treat it. I haven t been doing the weight ab workout since the pain but i have been working out regularly.

Hi there, I wanted to know if I could get some information about my back issue . I am a 49 year old woman in fairly good health. I am 5 9 tall and weigh 195 lbs. In the past year I have changed my lifestyle and have lost over 50 lbs. In the fall of 1994 my L4-5 disc bulged/hernitated and it also affected my right side sciatic nerve. After a hospital stay and 6 months of physio my back was not getting any better. I eventually had to have surgery. I had a discetomy and the L4-4 level and a limited laminectomy posteriorly at this operative site as well. My back seemed better for a few years then started to act up again. In 2002 I had an MRI done and the diagnosis stated theat there was a generalized bulging of the reamaining intervertebral disc at the L4-5 level without evidence of focality. Also, it stated that at the L4-5 level the posterior facet joints demonstrate very early mild symmetric degenerative change. Again, I took things easy, had physio and things seemed to be ok. Fast forward to 2011 and again I am in pain and limited mobility. My days are the worse in the mornings and in the evenings. I purchased a great bed 6 months ago because of my back problems. I have low back pressure and pain, as well as pain in my right buttock with pain radiating down my right leg. It is hard to perform any tasks below my waist ie tying up my shoe laces, picking up dropped items, washing in feet etc. Could yoy tell me a what my prognosis may be and what I may be looking forward to. Thank you.

I m a 39 yr old, anglo-saxon, female (a out 30 lbs over-weight), and I ve had chronic back pain for over a year (around the centre if my back and the area near the spine and shoulder blade). It aches and feels numb . For just as long, I ve had severe constipation and right upper abdominal pain. Worse when breathing in. Occasionally, I notice bright, red blood on tissue after wiping after BM. In the last 2 months or so I have noticed black/dark spots in my very narrow, pencil-thin, stools (stools have been narrow for over a yr, also) but, now these spots are present. Other symptoms/details are: I m tired all the time, blood work normal (aside from Egrf {renal function} of 56), ct normal of abdomin (found burst ovarian cyst on right side), spinal MRI normal (bulging discs-Dr not concerned), normal ultra-sound, and normal colonoscopy. All these tests were performed in the last 90-120 days. My Dr is at a loss. I am in chronic pain and no relief for a over a year. No change in diet, pills/meds, stress(ers), or anything worth mentioning. I also have difficulty emptying my bladder during this past yr. I ve added flax seed to cereal, increased water, decreased meats, and generally just been trying to eat healthier . No real relief or positive changes. I ve had diarrhea only a handful of times in the past yr.. It is generally bright-yellow, watery, contains a lot of mucous , and burns like I ve just sh*t tobacco sauce. What other direction can I insist my dr take? I live in CAN and switching drs is next to impossible! Thank you in advance!!!

Hi, having a problem on going down on my meds. My old doctor has left and had to find another Doctor for my Chronic pain before and after surgery was performed with a bone harvest. All of my cervical have some sort of problems. Now this doctor is taking me down on both my meds at once. Having a huge problem with this and being on both meds for over 8 years is a problem in going down on the dosage. The biggest probem is the xanax of taking 3day 2 pm total of 5mg. I am down to 2 mg at pm only. However it seems like this is the bottom line for me. Trying to take less will not allow me to sleep. The daily anxiety well just have to wait it out, and that s a problem as well. This doctor also took me down at the same time with my oxycotin 20mg 3x day and not only take 20mg 2x daily. In my opinion she has taken me down far too fast for being on for so long. My biggest question is WHY ? My next question would be what is the point if I suffer from hyperthyoidism and chronic pain at all times with a flatten spinal cord. Help is needed in coping with daily and nigh time withdrawls for HOW MUCH LONGER at this dosage if she stops and leaves me at this dosage ? Does this make sense ?
